The New York Society Library offers E-memberships for those interested in access to our collection of 20+ electronic resources. Most resources are accessible off-site. Some of the resources that we offer include JSTOR, Project Muse, The Founding Era (collections of papers and correspondence from the 18th-early 19th centuries), back issues The TLS (1902-2014), New York Review of Books (complete), and the London Review of Books (complete), various Oxford University Press databases, and many more.

We also offer our own database called City Readers, a fully searchable database of circulation records for our early membership from 1789 to 1805. City Readers is available to all, and is a rich resource for those studying reading history.

More information on e-memberships is available here; or write to membership@nysoclib.org . The E-membership costs $100 /year.

The New York Society Library was founded in 1754 and membership is by subscription. We offer additional membership options that include book borrowing privileges (we have a circulating collection of approximately 200,000 books in open stacks), use of study rooms, lectures, and more. The Library has a collection of rare books and special collections, as well.

Please write to me at smcguirl@nysoclib.org if you have any questions.

Thank you.
